Getting Started (READ ME)
« on: December 09, 2013, 11:13:49 AM »
Starting in January 2014 The Warmaster 40K forum will be hosting an online escalation league starting out at 200 points (kill team), 500 points, and then 1000 points. If you are new to the hobby this is a great way to motivate and build your army in small manageable point groups while playing and learning the game- 40K vets can also have a chance to revisit an older army and get it back on the tabletop…

Here is the league schedule:

December 2013: Start planning out your army and them models you want to play.

January 2014: January 1st kicks of the league @ 200 points Kill Team games- see the redirect link for the rules here on the forum.

February 2014: February has the armies jumping to 500 points using the standard 40K rules and force org chart.

March 2014: Armies jump from 500 points to 1000 points using the standard 40K rules and force org.

Once you start an army you must continue to play it till the end of the league as the wins for those playing will be tallied as followed.

Forum members that participate in the league can play as many games each month with their army as they like, either with another forum member if possible, or within their own gaming group, club, or hobby store.

For each win a member achieves it will be added to a scoreboard here on the forum based on the following army groups:

Imperial: Space Marines, Imperial Guard, Grey Knights, etc.

Chaos: Chaos Space Marines, Chaos Daemons.

Xenos: Eldar, Necrons, Tyranids, Tau, etc.

In order for the “win” to be applied to the league you MUST post a battle report in the sub forum- can be a simple paragraph write up or something as elaborate as a turn by turn battle report or YouTube video, but it has to be something, AND you have to let me (Fritz/Admin) know so I can check the post and tally it.

At the end of the event in addition to having a fully painted 1K army the following prizes will be given out:
A random member will be drawn from the winning faction.

A prize will be given out for best painted army- rubric to follow, (Fritz/Admin will be the paint judge).

A prize will be given out for the best battle report- rubric to follow, (Fritz/Admin will be the battle report judge.)
12/9/13- I’m in the process of securing prizes/loot right now, and will post the prizes once they have been finalized.)

Questions or comments can be directed either in the forum or by PM to me.
Though my men may sleep, and my ships rest at anchor, my foes know full well that big guns never tire...

Look on my works ye mighty, and despair...

Awsome idea.
For new players (and old returning players like me), these escalation leagues are great.
Doubt my kids will allow me time to keep up with the escalation tho.
Ill just keep using the eldarsection of the forum to keep motivated when building my eldar strikeforce

Can we do allies? Even at 1000 pts my CSM would benefit some Daemons :)

 I have one question. Should you include a troop choice in the kill team list?
